I'm buying a custom built comp since my old computer sucked and I need to know whether these specs will be adequate for gaming. I'll mostly be playing WoW and minecraft although I might try out diablo 3 since my old computer couldn't handle it. I'm kind of a noob at this.
Processor: Intel® Core™ i5-3570K Processor (4x 3.40GHz/6MB L3 Cache) - Intel Core i5-3570K
Memory: 16 GB [8 GB X2] DDR3-1333 Memory Module - Corsair or Major Brand
Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 550 Ti - 2GB - Single Card
Motherboard: ASRock Z77 Extreme4 -- 2x PCI-E 3.0 x16, 4x USB 3.0
Power Supply: 700 watt
Hard Drive: 1 TB HARD DRIVE -- 32M Cache, 7200 RPM, 6.0Gb/s - Single Drive

For WoW those specs are above adequate. If you're looking to run more modern games like Guild Wars 2 and Diablo 3, you might want to invest in a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 Ti since it's one of the cheapest cards that can run modern games on a high setting.
